"Protecting a castle has never been more fun, and if you’re expecting to put this puppy down after a few minutes, think again."

"There's no shortage of strategy in this delightfully unique tower defense game!"

"[CastleMine]’s deep upgrade system, tons of missions and digging mechanic offer a lot worth checking out."

"I don't recall ever coming across [a tower defense game] that's quite as strategic as CastleMine."

Defend your castle from the evils that lurk below in this unique strategy game! You will need to dig deep into the earth to uncover treasures and destroy the enemies threatening your castle.

Your foes will follow the path you dig so you must decide… Will you dig long and winding paths to slow your enemies down? Will you dig in search of treasure to help improve your defenses? Or will you dig up the cursed skulls that increase the power of your enemies but grant you greater rewards? These are the decisions you must make as both you and your castle grow in power!


In celebration of 1 million downloads across all platforms, CastleMine comes to iPhone and iPad with a brand new, fully optimised version just for iOS! This is the best version of CastleMine yet!

Absolutely fun

Great castle defense game! Balanced skill trees you can reset without penalty & levels of difficulty increase at a pace I find just right. Maybe not the flashiest graphics, but solid little game.

Good balance.

Not overly complicated. Nice balance of multiple resource collection for different kinds of upgrades all while digging your own path. Fun.

Love this game

This is a very well designed game. Tremendous replay value, and tons of fun. I thought tower defense type games were played out, but this is an outstanding game mechanic. Love it.
